Refers to events of 19 Oct. 1792 in which the Commissaires nationaux-civils ordered the arrest of three superior officers of the regiment in Cap-Français, Tousard, Cambefort and [Cécile-Stanislas?] de Girardin. They were accused of complicity with the slaves who were revolting, with thirty three other officers, and enlisted men and soldiers. Esparbès de Lussan, who served as colonial governor from June 1792 - October 21, 1792, refused to comply with the orders to arrest the three and was suspended.

Larchevêque-Thibaud was also named head of the Marine
